Sound right? Wished I could say I had more than just a few of them.

Think I read somewhere before also that the last time teams played 3 straight games in the NBA they did very well ATS that season.

Back in 1999, or the last lockout season teams playing b2b2b I believe were 36-28 ATS, and 28-36 SU. I'm surprised the teams are 6-0 ATS this year, but I wouldn't read too much into it. Interesting as the Hawks (and the Bulls somewhat) really tried to push the pace last night.

3 Games In 3 Days

In yet another battle of billionaires winning our over millionaires, the NBA finally came to its senses when it agreed to a new 10-year Collective Bargaining Agreement December 2nd. As a result the 2011-12 NBA season is back on and with it abound a myriad of scheduling complexities.

Every team will play 48 conference games and 18 against opposing conference opponents. Forced to cram a 66-game compacted schedule into a shortened agenda, the league needed to schedule 42 back-to-back-to-back games.

As a result, half as many of the 84 overall 3-games in 3-days situations that were played from 1994-2001 (the last year the league abolished back-to-back-to-backs) are being served up this campaign.

Here is a breakdown of how teams performing in this NBA troika fared over the final 8-year span

Home Not So Sweet Home

NBA home teams in the last of a 3-games in 3-days scenario struggled mightily as the linemaker could not compensate enough.

That's confirmed by as 15-24 SU and 12-21-1 ATS mark in these games by the tired hosts.

Whether it was a case of too much home cooking or tired legs, home teams simply wore down in this three-day window.

Suitcase Success

A larger mistake made by the linemaker was overcompensating road teams in these back-to-back-to-backers.

How else do you explain a 16-19 SU and 24-8 ATS record when playing on the road in the last leg of 3-games in 3-days?

Better yet, when these 'tired travelers' were playing off a win they wanted more, going a sterling 15-3 ATS in this situation.

Over And Out

As might be expected, three games in three days met with an abundance of high scoring games.

Whether it was because of a lack of defense or an unassuming host, the 'OVERS' in these games was certainly the play, going 39-27-1.

There you have it. It's now 'trips to win' in more ways than one when it comes to cracking the mystery to back-to-back-to-back games in the NBA.

Thanks...good info...i guess with OKC covering tonight were at 7-0 ATS this year. Pretty sick run to start the year.

Yes, the article points out the numbers, but typical doesn't make any sense with any sort of reasoning. T'Wolves tomorrow and Toronto On Wednesday...
